What Vegans Eat – Day 1805

First Meal: I had an audition in the morning and Gary had acting class. I came home first, starving. We had not eaten anything this morning. I took out all the leftovers and thought I would make Baked Falafel. When the Falafel were almost done, Gary came home and I warmed up the Potatoes and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1804

First Meal: I did it! I made Soy Foam almost as good as Gary’s this morning. My Soy Foam typically deflates quickly. But today I took the time making it and it came out wonderful. Like Gary makes it. I made Steel Cut Oats too, served with Blueberries, Flax Seeds, Apples, Raisins, Cinnamon and Sunflower…

First Meal: I am having leftovers for breakfast, starting with Corn Chowder.   Next up a slice of Ezekiel toast with Gary’s “Tuna” Salad, made with Garbanzo Beans.   Second Meal: We went to Manhattan for a memorial service. It was quite sad. When we left the church it was snowing outside. We were by…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1802

We poured it over Steel Cut Oats with Blueberries, Apples, Coconut and Walnuts.   Second Meal: Gary had bought Einkorn flour the other day. He had a desire…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1801

First Meal: Today I am at mom’s house. I typically visit once a week to do things for her. I hired a house cleaner recently and quickly learned I need to be there to keep mom distracted so the person can clean. My brother joined in the fun today and I was grateful to have…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1800

First Meal: Yesterday was so cold and today? Beautiful! It was sunny and relatively warm. Gary suggested we eat out… on the terrace! We needed to wear sweaters but it was so lovely. The Rolled Oats with Apples, Raisins, Coconut and Soy Milk never tasted so good.   Second Meal: You know how I love…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1799

First Meal: Some days you just have to have Tofu Scramble. This was one of those days. I am lucky that Gary agreed to make it! We buried it with Nutritional Yeast and served it with Corn Tortillas.   Second Meal: It was also a Green Zenphony Day. Just because. Bean Curd Platter Supreme for…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1798

First Meal: I had a call back audition today for a show in Wisconsin. I’m excited! It was fun and I feel like I did very well. I came home and made a great salad with the fresh and firm Romaine Lettuce I bought at Fairway yesterday.   The second course was a repeat of…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1797

First Meal: Everybody has their handful of dishes they make all the time. We do too, but there are more than a handful. Buckwheat crepes is one of them. Every time I make them I marvel at how easy they are. I made mine savory with a Spinach filling, mixed with some of the Tomato…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1796

First Meal: I love leftovers! Today’s were the best. Mashed Potatoes and Sautéed Greens to start.   Garbanzo Bean Flour Waffles with Almond Butter and Apricot Butter. Yum.   Second Meal: Gary made a wonderful stew tonight, Roasted Red Bell Peppers mixed with Tempeh, Carrots, Rancho Gordo Marcella Beans and a Tomato Paste with Roasted…

I corrected that this morning with Garbanzo Bean Flour Waffles served with smashed Bananas and Apricot Butter.   Second Meal: I haven’t seen mom in a week so it was time to visit. As usual, we went to lunch…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1794

What Vegans Eat – Day 1793

First Meal: Some days I start cooking not knowing what I will be making. Today was one of those days. I began by steaming Brussels Sprouts and boiling Yellow Potatoes. Then I got creative with some Tempeh. I cut it in chunks and added it to sautéed Onions. I made a Mustard and Apricot Butter…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1792

First Meal: Today’s cooked breakfast cereal is a combination of Oats and Polenta with Raisins and topped with Raspberry Coulis.   Second Meal: I did it again.

What Vegans Eat – Day 1791

First Meal: If you’ve been reading my blog, which will soon be five years old, you will know that I love soup. You should also know that I love making soup out of leftovers which is what I did today. I took the String Bean Dish with Buckwheat and Onions added water and some beans.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1790

First Meal: I love breakfasts that taste like dessert. This morning’s Breakfast Polenta was just that, topped with cooked Raisins, Raspberry Coulis, Coconut Flakes and Flax Seeds.   Second Meal: Gary’s sister Deb gifted us with several boxes of Rancho Gordo Beans last year. We just finished up our older inventory of dried beans and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1789

First Meal: We are going on a road trip to Connecticut to see a property. We like to look at homes for sale in different places, hoping one day to find the place that makes us both melt, or even just one of us. We had Rolled Oats with Coconut, walnuts, Cacao Nibs, Raisins and…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1788
